But now, because of Christ, we may come near and feast our hearts on the fullness of the flaming beauty of God's holiness. He will not be dishonored. We will not be consumed. Because of the all-protecting Christ, God will be honored and we will stand in everlasting awe. Therefore, do not fear to come. But come through Christ. ~John PiperAnd with His last breath, the curtain in the temple was torn in two. No longer were there to be any barriers to keep us from relationship with God. The final atonement and sacrifice was made. It. is. done. Christ death... and Resurrection three days later, purified His bride, and broke through all the chains that hindered her. Now we can walk in freedom. We can walk in a deep, abiding relationship with Him, and there's grace to struggle without condemnation. Hallelujah! Christ is Risen! We have life everlasting!
